Need a butler ? That's where Hello Alfred comes in. For a starting price of $32 a week, you can get your own "Alfred" -- that's what named after Batman's loyal servant.

Why park your own Rolls Royce when you can get someone else to do it. Luxe promises to take the stress out of parking in the big city by being your personal valet service.
Use the app to say where you're going to be, and a Luxe valet will be there to take your car when you arrive (look for the eye-piercing blue jacket). When you want your car back, a valet will drop it off where you want. They can also fill up the gas, wash your car, or change the oil.
Luxe operates in several US cities including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Austin. Rates vary but basic parking will cost you $5 an hour.
There are different monthly subscriptions depending on location like unlimited parking ($399 in SF, $339 in Chicago) and residential car storage ($224 in LA, $599 in NYC).
First class ain't good enough anymore, why not book your own private jet?
JetSmarter wants to be the Uber for private jets, and while the on-demand aspect isn't quite as simple as Uber -- you can't just have a jet pick you up where you are -- the app handles all the booking from a clean mobile interface.
A JetSmarter membership will cost you $15,000 for the first year, which gives you free seats on shuttle flights under three hours and access to jet deals. Long haul flights start at $450 from New York to San Francisco.
The price of chartering your own private jet will vary by flight.
The app operates a few ways:
You can book a private charter with your own itinerary, destination, and selection of aircraft.
Book a flight and leave empty seats for other JetSmarter users to fill up (offsetting the hefty cost of flying alone).
Hop on other people's booked planes (reverse of the previous option).
Or you can snag one of JetSmarter's jet deals, for spontaneous flying at a reduced price (but still expensive).
The company has been called the AirBnB for mansions, though Luxury Retreats outdated AirBnB, launched in 1999. But thanks to its app and VC backing, the service feels like it belongs in Silicon Valley (even though it's office is based in Montreal).
Luxury Retreats has a wide selection of beach villas, mansions, and countryside estates, as well some breathtaking private islands, Prices vary depending on the location and home you're staying in. But even if you're lucky enough to find a listing for less than $1,000 a night, keep in mind that many of the listings have a 7 night minimum stay.
Uber making the list as well. On a few special occasions Uber brought its ride-hailing service to marine vessels with UberBOAT.
UberBOAT has made special appearances during events like Miami Art Week and Cannes Lions Festival. The service is mainly promotional and it lets riders request anything from a water taxi to a luxury yacht straight from the Uber app.
UberBOAT services come and go and are always localized.
If you're a top level business executive, you may have a personal assistant who helps with all the tasks you're too busy to do.
Fancy Hands brings you your own on-demand personal assistant, who can help you do things like make a dinner reservation, schedule an appointment, or deal with customer service.
It's aimed at small business owners, but really works for anyone who feels overwhelmed or maybe just doesn't want to book their own vacation.
You can assign tasks through the app, text, email, or phone calls, but there's one catch -- tasks have to be able to be completed remotely.
The most basic plan gives you 5 requests a month for $30, while the premier plan gives you 50 requests for $200.
Bannerman lets you hire a security guard to oversee your home, office, event, or party.
The hired muscle is no joke. The company claims that guards have over five years of experience on average and must pass DOJ and FBI background checks before they're accepted into the program.
Bannerman's short-term flat rate is $50 per hour, but it offers discounts for regular users. The guards are only available in San Francisco, LA, New York, and Dallas-Fort Worth.
